Da Vinci Code movie

Been looking forward to the film for ages after reading the book so made sure we went to see it on the day it came out.
The film is generally true to the book - some scenes were totally different however but were probably filmed that way from the challenge of fitting everything into two and a half hours. For example, in the book, Langdon needed time to figure out some of the puzzles but he managed to solve them in the film very quickly indeed which felt a bit odd after reading the book.
The general gist of the story was left as is however and I think that people who enjoyed the book will enjoy the film too - just dont expect it to be exactly like the book.
First timers to the Da Vinci Code may find the film a bit overwhelming due to the amount of information one has to absorb whilst processing the action bits in between.

As usual, we went to the Toho (previously Virgin) cinema complex at Roppingi Hills and booked online - this time discovering a "hack" to get good seats. Even though one can book tickets online, the folks over here are generally accustomed to the old way of buying tickets which is to go and queue up for them.
As there aren't that many people booking online, this works a charm. Go to the Toho site for Roppongi and start to book a ticket. If you are allocated crap seats, open a *different* browser and repeat the same process (dont forget to keep the crap-seat browser session open. Hopefully, you will be assigned better seats as you are blocking off the crap seats in a different browser session. If you run out of browsers, use the other computers in your house or look for a Firefox extension to support multiple browser sessions - let us know if you find one ^^.
